Vinyl / Re: 192/32 needed for digitized vinyl to sound as analogue as possible
Last post by Porcus -
Do you seriously believe there are degrees of analog? Digital vs analog is a clear-cut, black & white distinction. Can something be "slightly digital" or "mostly analog"? No, it either is analog or it is not analog. The only way to keep a recording "as analog as possible" is to USE an analog recording system.
Is there anything correct here? I don't think so.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_discogs
Last post by fuffi -
I found another release, where foo_discogs aborts and the user needs to restart f2k. Otherwise, the foo_discogs window is not closing and accepting any pressed buttons.

https://www.discogs.com/release/9456725

See the screenshots for the error: invalid map<K, T> key
The release date for that release on Discogs is invalid. The next release of foo_discogs will catch that error rather than crashing.
Thanks zoomorph,
I just wanted to try to fix the invalid date (now, there is a nice error description), but the date is empty?

Will the component now always show an error on empty release dates? This, I would love to silently be dropped and not shown as an error, because no date is no error, IMHO, its just no release-date.
Or am I missing something here?
The release date coming from the API is actually invalid (even though it shows blank on Discogs website). If you replaced it with a valid one, it would probably start to work.

Hmm. Ok, The Release Date from the "webgui" => https://api.discogs.com/releases/9456725
shows "2008-16-12".

How can I see the invalid date, like you see it? 8-)

Or I might open a ticked at discogs, maybe there is a problem with the release?

If you quickly scroll through the master releases, with tapping the CURSOR UP key from the last entry of the master releases list up to the first entry. every second master releases is skipped from opening and needs an extra tap to be opened. kinda strange.
It now only loads one at a time so you'll have to scroll more slowly.

Oh, thats not a good fix. Now, every second or third release will not open.

May it be possible to load the releases one after another, regardless how many times the user clicks on it?
So, if I click (or move the cursor), on a release, the fine component will remember to open it later, if all the loading has finished.

It also needs two or three clicks on a master release to load. (I guess, loading has not stopped yet, but how can I see it?)

Somewhat telling that the OP hasn't returned to defend his position, however:

...to have the sound as analogue as possible...

Do you seriously believe there are degrees of analog? Digital vs analog is a clear-cut, black & white distinction. Can something be "slightly digital" or "mostly analog"? No, it either is analog or it is not analog. The only way to keep a recording "as analog as possible" is to USE an analog recording system.
or, you know, just play it. sound waves in air are not digital.

MPC / Re: Do Musepack's inherently fast decoding speeds still mean anything?
Last post by magicgoose -
Musepack can still be a good choice IMO for several reasons:

Potentially one more: If I ever find a musepack file, I don't need to ask myself if it is what I acquired or not - I will know that I have transcoded it myself.


Can be achieved more consistently by signing files with your private key. And it will work for any type of files.
